HC Deb 23 April 1936 vol 311 cc313-4W

asked the Minister of Health whether his attention has been called to the death of a boy of six years of age at the Burnham-on-Sea Children's Home, on 9th February, in respect of which a jury returned a verdict that the cause of death was shock caused by intense cold in a case of malnutrition of body and multiple minor injuries; and whether he will ascertain and inform the House what were the multiple minor injuries from which the child was suffering?


I am aware of this case, which has received careful consideration and has been fully investigated by a special committee appointed by the County Council as a, result of which the appointment of the matron of the Home has been terminated.

Forward to
